Zoltan's communist era tour brought the memento park to life and we were so glad that it was part of the tour. Zoltan explained the meaning behind the iconic statues and we watched the wonderful public information film on how to inform on your friends and family - an absolute gem and well worth the trip out there. Zoltan will... More

We learned so much about not just the troubled history of Hungry, but also the absurdities of the past and present political system. If you are looking for a conventional tour of historical sites, this is not the tour for you but if you want to learn the truth about Hungry past and present, Zoltan will make sure that you... More

Zoltan and his colleagues are incredible guides. We have traveled our whole lives, including to Hungary previously and not ever experienced a better deal. The price of their wonderful service and personal attention is well worth it. We learned more and saw more in a day than we imagined possible. They are proud of their country, very knowledgeable, great communicators,... More

My wife and I were in Budapest for several days, and spent half a day with Zoltan and his amazing Communist Era tour. This was certainly one of the highlights of our trip. Zoltan is so polite and knowledgeable about the history of Hungary and Budapest during the Communist times because he lived there during it and could provide a... More

My wife and I spent a half day with Zoltan and without a shadow of a doubt it was the highlight of our short break in Budapest. Zoltan imparted his knowledge of not just the history but also the architecture, politics and some insight into the dichotomy of the people in Budapest. It was a pleasure spending time with him...

Our Communist Era tour with Zoltan was an informative and thoroughly enjoyable 4 hours. He picked my husband and I up in the city and we travelled out to Memento Park in his Landrover, then to a number of sites in the city. His explanations and insights helped us gain a much greater understanding than if we had visited unaccompanied.... More

Zoltan exceeded any and all expectations. He met our family of 4 at a location of our choosing and immediately found a hidden gem for a super traditional and delicious Hungarian lunch. We then proceeded to spend the entirety of the afternoon exploring the Castle Hill and learning everything there is to know about Hungarian history, politics, geography and more... More

Zoltan is a very cultured man, with a very interesting perspective of the country and its history. His wide range of knowledge make his tour guide quite insightful. His rich accumulation of data and knowledge plus his openness and... More

We spent four days in Budapest, but we were feeling we didn't know anything about the city and Hungary in general. Zoltan helped us with his encyclopedic culture, and showed us what he loves to call the absurdistan. We enjoyed a lot the full day we spent together and even with a terrible freezing wind he continued his tour and... More
